You Can Help Safeguard the Planet’s Most Important Biodiversity Hotspot!
Less than 15 percent of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta’s original highland forest remains intact, and deterioration of this habitat poses a critical risk of extinction for many species. El Dorado Nature Reserve is the only strictly protected area in the region, but its protection is being challenged by the expansion of farms, pasturelands, coffee plantations and neighboring landowners wanting to develop housing.
Your support will enable Rainforest Trust to:
- Step up protective measures against colonization and agricultural expansion and also expand the area under protection;
- Implement a multifaceted conservation program that includes reserve protection, eradication of invasive and non-native Mexican pines, a massive habitat restoration program and install nest-boxes to help the Santa Marta Parakeet populations rebound; and
- Safeguard the future of countless endangered species that depend on this unique area for their survival like the Critically Endangered Santa Marta Toro and the Endangered Santa Marta Parakeet and San Lorenzo Harlequin Frog.
Support Rainforest Trust today and protect El Dorado Nature Reserve and the amazing species that call this habitat home!
